The Acura TLX is a new model in Acura’s lineup that debuted at the New York Auto Show in 2014. It was a replacement for the Acura TL and TSX sedans and boasted the option of a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 209 horsepower or a 3.5-liter V-6 that was upgraded for 2016 to produce 290 horsepower. Improving performance even further was the option of Acura’s SH-AWD system for upper trim level models. The TLX didn’t see any other improvements for 2016, but it already sported a front and rear end similar to that of the Honda Accord, including the Jewel-eye LED headlights.

The TLX was first presented in concept form – dubbed the TLX Prototype – at the 2014 Detroit Auto show and, as you already know, it was only a few months later that the production model showed up. In short, it was a move by Acura to jumpstart its position in the Performance Luxury Sedan market because the TS and TSX just weren’t cutting the mustard and couldn’t gain traction in the market. At the end of the day, Acura did pretty well with the TLX, and it should be up for a facelift by 2018. Until then, let’s take a look at the 2015 to 2016 Acura TLX and everything that it brought to the table from Honda’s performance brand.

Updated 09/23/2015: Acura announced prices for the 2016 TLX, which will go on sale on September 24. Prices will range from $31,695 for the base TLX with eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and up to $44,800 for the 3.5L SH-AWD TLX with Advance Package.

What’s The Best Upscale Performance Sedan You Can Get For Less Than $50K?

Mixing business and pleasure at a reasonable price

The sport sedan – talk about a hotly contested segment. Almost every major automaker out there has one, but as you might expect, not all are created equal. And that’s where we come in, armed with a boatload of facts and figures to help rank the various entries from best to worst. Of course, more attentive TopSpeed readers out there are sure to point out that this is a topic we’ve covered before, most recently in a comparison piece looking at the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Chrysler 300, Infiniti Q50, Jaguar XE, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. But unlike that last article, which focused on luxury cars with a sporty flavor, this piece will instead focus on cars that place a greater emphasis on performance, with luxury as a secondary priority. As such, we’re picking apart the Acura TLX, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Cadillac ATS, Subaru WRX STI, and Volvo S60. Sure, there’s overlap, but in this crowd, the effort is made more for grins behind the wheel than backside coddling.

That isn’t to say these cars aren’t comfortable – indeed, each offers a fair amount of upscale treatment, some more so than others. That said, we weighed performance much more heavily this time around, giving otherwise more spartan models a shot at the top of the list. So how do we place these five four-doors? Read on to find out.

Acura's Preparing For a Full-On Onslaught at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

Acura’s Preparing For a Full-On Onslaught at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

Three spec racers from Honda-owned automaker will be competing in the hill climb

Over the past five years, Acura has been a staple at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. It’s done quite well for itself there, including last year when it sent three modified NSX supercars, scoring the Time Attack 2 win with a time of 10 minutes and 28 seconds. This year, the Honda-owned automaker will make it six years in a row at Pikes Peak, and once more, it’s bringing with it some heavy-hitting machinery, including a GT3-inspired NSX, a TLX GT racer, and a debuting TLX A-Spec racer.

All three cars will be competing in Pikes Peak, so don’t expect these machines to be run of the mill. Each have been prepared specifically to handle the rigorous hill climb, arriving at the event packing aerodynamic, engine, and suspension upgrades. Pikes Peak isn’t your typical race track after all, so you can be sure that all three cars are getting ready to stake their names in the race. Beyond having these racers, Acura’s involvement at Pikes Peak also extends to pace car duties since the company is the Official Pace Car sponsor at this year’s race. On top of that, Acura is also participating in a handful of pre-race activities to showcase all of the four-wheeled racing hardware it’s bringing to the event and hosting an MDX Rookie Orientation in the lead-up to the race. It’s going to be a busy weekend for Acura when the flags start flying on June 23.

Acura Takes Aim at the Chinese Market by Showing Off a Prototype of the TLX-L at Shanghai

Acura Takes Aim at the Chinese Market by Showing Off a Prototype of the TLX-L at Shanghai

This could be a big seller in the Chinese market!

The Acura TLX fights for dominance in a tough segment with models like the BMW 3 Series, Alfa Romeo Giulia, and Mercedes C-Class, among others. It’s a war-torn battlefield where models must be updated frequently to keep up, and things are always changing. As such, Acura has stayed on top of its game with the TLX, and just a few years after being introduced, it has gone through a facelift that brought about a new look to the front and rear, including the new Precision grille, lots of LED lights, and some updated technology inside to help it stay relevant. The updated TLX debuted at the New York Auto show, and just days later, Acura pulled the sheet off of another TLX – this time in prototype form with a longer wheelbase.

Obviously, Acura is trying to judge public interest in a LWB TLX in the one market that glorifies long vehicles with excessive room in the rear. It’s a status symbol, really, and the TLX in longer form should be more than sufficient for the wealthy Chinese businessman who would rather be driven. Acura hasn’t said much about this prototype and has only released a couple of images. The exterior is identical to the model we saw here in the U.S., with the exception of it having an extra-long roof, kick panels, and rear door. How much longer is it? Well, Acura didn’t say, but judging its length by the pictures provided, I’m guessing it’s somewhere around 4.5-inches longer. That should boost rear legroom up to around 38.5-inches, up from 34.5-inches in the standard model. There’s no word on any interior changes outside of the potential for extra legroom, but I suspect Acura would cater to the Chinese market well and offer plenty of rear-seat amenities like reclining seats, leg rests, rear infotainment, etc…

Acura TLX A-Spec Proves You Don't need an M or AMG Badge to Look Good

Acura TLX A-Spec Proves You Don’t need an M or AMG Badge to Look Good

The new trim brings even better styling to the updated TLX

Acura debuted an updated TLX in New York today that featured a new precision grille, updated fascias, a new hood, and an updated infotainment system. The Technology and Advanced packages also bring even more value with new features. But, alongside that updated TLX, sits an all-new trim and it’s TLX you really want to pay attention to. It doesn’t offer any engine upgrades, but it comes standard with the 24-valve, 3.5-liter, V-6 that delivers 290 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 267 pound-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm. It’s not the power delivery that sets the A-Spec apart from the bunch, though. See, the A-Spec can be had in two-wheel drive or with Acura’s SH-AWD system, and it gets its unique look – a look that will make you think twice about considering something with an M or AMG badge on it.

To start things off, the new A-Spec gets an updated front fascia that combines the TLX’s new look with deeply recessed corner vents and a sporty air dam up front. The corner vents, air dam, and that new precision grille are outlined with a gloss-black trim insert that helps assert a strikingly aggressive look that stands out in this segment. Round fog lights tie things together for the front, but as you move to the side, there’s even more. The fender gets its own unique A-spec badge, while the side view mirrors get gloss black arms. Down below, the A-spec has updated and mildly aggressive side skirts. The trim around the windows on the A-spec are also finished in gloss black. The real conversation piece here, however, are the dark-finish, 19-inch wheels that are exclusive to this model only and are wrapped in 245-series rubber.

Around back, a black spoiler graces the rear deck lid, while a new diffuser-like element in gloss-black adds a bit of aggression to the rear. Large, exhaust outlets can be found on each corner, with a slight angle toward the outer corners. There’s some modification under the metal and inside too, so keep reading to learn more about that.

Acura is asserting a bit of dominance in the compact luxury segment

The TLX isn’t even out of the toddler stages yet, but it’s already asserting its dominance in a segment that contains models like the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class, and even models like the Jaguar XE and Alfa Romeo Giulia. With a segment full of heavy hitters, you have to stay fresh and alert, and when the doors opened at the 2018 New York Auto Show, it’s clear that Acura is doing just that with the TLX. The new front fascia provides distinctive lines with a fresh look down below. The corner inserts get new LED fog lights and chrome surrounding trim. This is the icing on the cake, however, as the new precision grille stands out indefinitely in comparison to the current model. It’s wider, taller, and outlined in a healthy dose of chrome. Tying the whole front end together is a new hood with muscular lines and a pair of updated Jewel Eye headlights.

The side profile gets a new chrome insert along the side skirts while the rear end gets a restyled fascia with a diffuser-like element at the bottom, two rectangular exhaust outlets, and a pair of chrome inserts that match those on the front fascia. These updates definitely make the car more attractive, but also give the TLX a significant advantage over the competition. But, there’s more. All V-6 models can now be equipped with SH-AWD while the Technology Package now offers those chrome side sill garnishing, new seats with contrast piping and stitching, and a thigh extension on the driver’s seat. The Advance Package adds trapezoidal fog lights, surround view camera, wireless charging page, ambient lighting, heated steering wheel and rear outboard seats, rear spoiler, and folding side mirrors.

2018 Acura TLX

2018 Acura TLX

There’s lots of Acura Precision DNA to enjoy

The Acura TLX hit showrooms for the 2015 model year as a replacement for the TL and TSX sedans. After just a couple of years on the market, Acura commissioned a facelifted for 2018 that will keep the first generation alive until at least 2021. The big news here is that the TLX is getting a new pentagonal grille that not only replaces the beak found on most Acura vehicles but is also similar to the grille found on the Precision concept and the updated MDX crossover. That new grille will be accented by new headlight units and a new fascia. Inside, the 2018 TLX changes very little with this facelift but does have Acura’s updated dual-screen interface that’s said to be 30-percent faster and has more intuitive menus. Drivetrain options carry over unchanged, with the base model making use of a 206-horsepower four-cylinder and the TLX V6 getting the same 290-horsepower V-6 mill. Pricing for the updated TLX starts out at $33,000 and climbs to as much as $45,750 for the range-topping TLX 3.5 SH-AWD with the Advance Package.

So, as you can see, the term “facelift” is perfect for this model as the updates are focused primarily on the exterior design. And, while there isn’t any major improvement to the interior and absolutely zero improvements to the mechanical bits and pieces under the hood, it’s still a fitting update after just a few short years on the market. With competition like the Infiniti Q50, Cadillac ATS, BMW 3 Series, and the Mercedes C-Class, the Acura TLX has its work cut out. Will the new looks be enough to keep the TLX relevant? Let’s take a good look and find out.

2017 Acura TLX – Driven

2017 Acura TLX – Driven

Acura acts tough, but can’t shake its happy Honda heritage

The Acura TLX competes in a rather strong segment with players like the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, not to mention relative newcomers like the Jaguar XE and Alfa Romeo Giulia. Needless to say, Acura has its work cut out. Curious to see how the TLX performs on familiar streets, I recently spent a week with a 2017 model fitted with the optional 3.5-liter V-6 and SH-AWD. This would technically be Acura’s hottest-performing TLX. So how’d it do?

Well, I’ll get to that. But first, some backstory.

The TLX hit the scene for the 2015 model year. It was designed to replace the compact TSX and slightly larger TL sedans. Acura essentially reorganized its sedan lineup, which now includes the compact, Civic-based ILX, the mid-size TLX, and the RLX luxury flagship. Not much has changed for the 2017 model year beyond a slight price increase. This means the car carries over with its standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder, eight-speed dual-clutch automatic, and front-wheel drive. Different option packages bring high-tech bits like active safety features and upgradeg leather seats to go the an ELS stereo system.

My tester, which came fully kitted out with the V-6, AWD, the Technology Package and Advance Package, represented the cream of the TLX crop. Its $45,740 price tag actually sits mid-pack in relation to its competition, with the Audi and Alfa Romeo coming in slightly lower, while the Mercedes and BMW can be optioned to cost more than $5,000 more than the my loaded TLX tester. What’s that mean for Acura? The TLX represents a relative bargain. And, thanks to its 290-horsepower engine and torque-vectoring AWD system with rear-wheel steering, the Acura provides plenty of fun when driven hard, with a sure-footed grip when tooling around town.

There’s more to the Acura TLX, so keep reading for the full driven review.

2017 Acura TLX GT Package

2017 Acura TLX GT Package

Now you can add some aesthetic appeal to your TLX without going broke or opting for an aftermarket kit

The Acura TLX rolled onto the scene for the first time as the TLX Prototype at the 2014 New York Auto Show and went into production for the 2015 model year as a sporty proposition to and replace for the Acura TL and TSX sedans. As one of the youngest in Acura’s lineup, the TLX is still gaining momentum in the public eye but has a lot to offer. It can be had with 2.4-liter four-banger and front-wheel drive or with a 3.5-liter V-6 in either front- or all-wheel drive. Acura’s all-wheel steering system is available on FWD models while the V-6, AWD model has to go without. With pricing ranging between $31,900 and $44,800, there truly is a TLX for just about anyone, and you can expect the TLX to stick around in Acura’s stable for the foreseeable future. As such, Acura has decided to offer up a new package known as the GT package that is said to reflect on the TLX GT car that just finished its Pirelli World Challenge campaign.

Some might consider the TLX a sports sedan, while others look at it as more of a premium luxury sedan, but that’s the beauty of it because both views are correct. This new package, which is set to be showcased at SEMA for 2016, comes after the Technology Package and Advance Package that are already available for the TLX lineup. The Technology package is the first available package and includes things like Acura Navigation and a premium sound system. When the Technology Package is equipped, the Advance Package can be opted for and includes heated and ventilated seats, and lots of driver assistance features, among other things. Where these two packages stop, the GT package comes into play with some visual and aesthetic enhancements that give a properly equipped TLX a new, stylish edge.

Unlike the Advance Package, the GT Package doesn’t require the technology package. And, since it’s not a massive package with tons of features, it won’t increase your total cost that much. With that said, let’s scope out the details and talk about it in a little more detail.

Acura Stops TLX Sales, Recall to Follow

Acura Stops TLX Sales, Recall to Follow

Acura’s brand-new TLX sedan is the subject of a stop-sale order about four months since being shipped to U.S. dealerships. According to Automotive News, Honda notified dealers to stop selling TLX models equipped with the nine-speed automatic due to a faulty parking lock that could cause the vehicles to roll away despite the push-button shifter indicating the sedan is in park mode.

There’s no word as to how many TLXs are affected by this issue, but Auto News TV reports that Acura sold more than 15,000 units as of December 2014. However, not all TLXs are equipped with a nine-speed auto, which is exclusive to the 3.5-liter V-6 engine. Sedans powered by the 2.4-liter inline-four are sold with an eight-speed dual-clutch. The nine-speed version retails from $35,220.

Honda plans to start notifying customers about the recall January 6th, 2015. All affected TLXs will have their faulty parking lock replaced at Acura dealerships free of charge.

2015 Acura TLX - Driven

2015 Acura TLX - Driven

The Acura TL and TSX were long in the tooth, very outdated and were in desperate need of replacement. Acura recognized this need and answered it with the 2015 TLX, which is a sort-of replacement for both now-discontinued models. Slightly larger than the TSX and a little smaller than the unimpressive TL, the TLX finds itself in a crowded segment that includes perennial stalwarts like the BMW 3 Series, Lexus IS and the Audi A4.

Acura has been working hard to upgrade its lineup in recent years. First came the introduction of the ILX, which I tested a few weeks ago, and now we have the TLX. I fell in love with the ILX, but I felt that it was screaming for a dual-clutch transmission. Fortunately, my TLX came with the same 2.4-liter engine as the ILX and had a dual-clutch transmission, so logic would say that it had to check nearly every box on my list.

Read on to find out if my logic holds true or if the TLX failed to meet my expectations like the TL it replaces.

2015 Acura TLX by Galpin Auto Sports

To make a mark in the luxury sport sedan market, Acura will need to offer a pretty enticing product, but it looks like it’s on target with the TLX. So far, the response has been positive, as the car features some of the latest developments that the Japanese automaker has on tap. The TLX first appeared in dealerships over the summer, bringing with it a wide range of technology to choose from. Drivetrain options include a 2.4-liter inline-four mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, or 3.5-liter V-6 putting power down through a nine-speed automatic. Both come with Acura’s Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS), while the V-6 model also offers Acura’s trademark Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive (SH-AWD) system.

To help solidify the sporting image of it’s new sedan, Acura will make an appearance at SEMA with this very blue TLX customized by Galpin Auto Sports (of Pimp My Ride fame). The pimped TLX showcases what can be done to enhance both the look and performance of the sport sedan with mild modifications to the body, suspension, and brakes.

Best and Worst of the 2014 New York International Auto Show

Okay, folks, the 2014 New York International Auto Show is in the books, and we saw more debuts than we could even keep up with. We saw all of the big boys come with at least one key addition to their lineups, but we also had a few misses.

This year, each of our esteemed staffers has chosen their favorite and least favorite of the show and let you know why they loved or hated each one — some of us even had complete opposite opinions.

Along with the 2015 TLX Prototype Acura also unveiled the TLX GT Race Car at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. The new Acura racer will be raced in the Pirelli World Challenge Championship where it will face the likes of the Audi R8 LMS, Cadillac CTS-V, Chevrolet Corvette and many more.

The new Acura TLX GT Race Car was developed by Honda Performance Development (HPD) and is offered with an impressive list of updates over the base TLX, including a new HPD-developed chassis and an aero kit, which includes a front lip spoiler, side skirts, front and rear bumpers and a huge rear wing, to keep the racer glued to the track.

Under its hood, HPD took the base TLX’s direct-injected, V-6 engine and strapped on a pair of turbochargers to bump its power to racing levels. Also included is Acura’s Super-Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system for optimal traction.

2015 Acura TLX Prototype

Acura is preparing to replace the lackluster TL with the new TLX performance luxury sedan. The first preview of the car — the TLX prototype — made its debut today at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

The new TLX will feature a sportier look than the TL that it replaces, and it will be offered with two all-new engines that will deliver more power and improved fuel economy. Both engines will mate to an all-new advanced transmission that drives either two wheels or all four wheels.

On top of the new drivetrain, Acura also announced that the model will carry a new design language, a roomier cabin than the one offered in the TL and lots of new technology.

The new TLX will be put on sale in mid-2014, which also happens to be the same time that Acura will give the axe treatment to the unsuccessful TSX. This will leave company to motor on with just three sedans: ILX, TLX and RLX.
